Hi all

Has anyone had success in exporting facial expressions to Cinema 4D? I'm in R23.

Here are the steps I've taken so far:
1) Pose a figure
2) Save a custom Motion Plus file
3) File > Export > FBX (Clothed)
4) Target Tool: C4D R19 / Include Motion: Custom, drag the Motion Plus file into the field and hit Export

Over in C4D the body pose comes through fine but the face is a blank stare. Am I missing anything to get this to work?
Thanks in advance!

I did just run through all the Pose Morphs, which I suppose are the C4D equivalent of blend shapes - oohs, aaahs, suggestive eyebrow gestures etc...

These are perfectly serviceable, but definitely less fun to work with than CC3s interface.
Thanks for your reply
